Complexity Theory For A New Managerial Paradigm: A Research Framework, Gandolfo Dominici, Vasja Roblek

Vasja Roblek

In this work, we have outlined a research framework for a new management paradigm, attempting trying to link the main concepts of complexity theory, change management, knowledge management, sustainable development and, cybernetics. We discussed the transition from the industrial era to the post industrial age. In the development process, nothing is fixed in advance; we can say that it is opportunistic, and adapts to the challenges of the environment, as well as to their effects for and within organizations and society.

Family Control, Socioemotional Wealth And Earnings Management In Publicly Traded Firms, Geoffrey P. Martin Dr, Joanna Campbell Dr, Luis R. Gomez-Mejia Prof 2015 Melbourne Business School

Family Control, Socioemotional Wealth And Earnings Management In Publicly Traded Firms, Geoffrey P. Martin Dr, Joanna Campbell Dr, Luis R. Gomez-Mejia Prof

Geoffrey P Martin

We examine the unique nature of agency problems within publicly traded family firms by investigating the earnings management decision of dominant family owners relative to non-family. To do so, we draw upon literature demonstrating that family owners are loss averse with respect to the family’s socioemotional wealth (SEW), or the affective endowment derived from firm ownership and control. Our theory and findings suggest that potential reputational consequences of earnings management lead family principals to engage in less of this practice relative to non-family firms, and that founder family firms are less likely than non-founder family firms to use earnings ...

Does The Fire Station Have A Glass Ceiling? Perceptions Of Female Firefighters, John C. Griffith, James T. Schultz, Ronald T. Wakeham, Marian C. Schultz

John Griffith

This research examined perceptions of 338 female firefighters in the United States. Specifically, respondents answered questions on if they would pursue a career in the fire service again, if they would advise a daughter or family member to join and if they were treated as equals by male firefighters. Additionally, female firefighters were asked if they achieved more acceptance from males based on length of time on the job and if physical requirements unnecessarily limited female firefighters. A significant majority of female firefighters indicated that they enjoyed their careers, would advise a daughter or family member to join and that ...

Progressive Trust Formation Within The South African Fresh Produce Industry Through The Use Of Self-Service Technologies, Justy Range, Awie C. Leonard Phd

The African Journal of Information Systems

When using self-service solutions to deliver services the challenge is to retain the trust of the end user. This is specifically the case when dealing with end users in the fresh produce market environment. This sector has not seen the adoption of self-service technologies specifically in southern Africa. In this paper we propose a model to enhance our understanding of trust formation using self-service technologies. A qualitative research approach, based on a case study was followed to create the model. This case study offers insight into how the dynamics of the product, supporting services and the technology shapes trust forming ...

Prólogo, Luis González Vaqué 2015 Asociación Iberoamericana para el Derecho Alimentario

Prólogo, Luis González Vaqué

Luis González Vaqué

El consumo de alimentos es un aspecto substancial del comportamiento cultural en su sentido más amplio. Comer ha estado siempre sometido a reglas: religiosas en un principio, tradicionales desde tiempos inmemoriales y, finalmente, jurídicas. Estas pautas de comportamiento alimentario, con diversos niveles de obligatoriedad, siguen cohabitando temporal y territorialmente en la actualidad.

En este breve resumen de este interesante libro electrónico, titulado precisamente "La legislación alimentaria y su aplicación en la industria", no deseo extenderme más sobre lo que es y significa alimentarse: sí quiero recordar, de todos modos, que la magia y el simbolismo atribuidos a ciertos productos alimenticios ...


Executive Compensation In Controlled Companies, Kobi Kastiel 2015 Harvard Law School

Executive Compensation In Controlled Companies, Kobi Kastiel

Indiana Law Journal

Conventional wisdom among corporate law theorists holds that the presence of a controlling shareholder should alleviate the problem of managerial opportunism because such a controller has both the power and incentives to curb excessive executive pay. This Article challenges that common understanding by proposing a different view based on an agency problem paradigm. Controlling shareholders, this Article suggests, may in fact overpay managers in order to maximize controllers’ consumption of private benefits, due to their close social and business ties with professional managers or for other reasons, such as being captured by professional managers. This tendency to overpay managers is ...

Supply Chain Sustainability: The Bio-Fuels Market, Chris D. Bellamy 2015 Liberty University

Supply Chain Sustainability: The Bio-Fuels Market, Chris D. Bellamy

Chris D. Bellamy

Research into biofuel technology and innovative supply chain practices are helping to resolve sustainability problems in supply logistics and mass transportation. Biofuels provide a viable alternative to the use of fossil fuels and can be produced and replenished because the fuel is from plants and plant derived materials. Applications in aerospace, automotive, and electrical power production are the prime targets of biofuels development; the fuels have applications in many industries around the world. Global supply chain practices provide sustainable development of bio fuels storage, transportation, agriculture, and other industries. All of these industries require partnerships between unlikely stakeholders such as ...
